Hogs Today's hog receipts were the
Hghtest of the week to date, and were Just
lair for a Friday, ninety-six oars, or about
7,100 head being reported in. The week's
total of 62.060 head la 17,000 larger than
a week ago, 0,600 heavier than two weeks
ago and an lncreaaa of nearly 0,000 over
the corresponding daya last year.
Prices again showed a lower tendency and
the undertone waa weak, though on the big
end of the offerings there was no such de
cline, as that registered yesterday and the
day before. On opening rounds shippers,
anticipating that light recslpta would have
a strengthening tendency, paid prices that'
were fully steady to, If anything, a little

Sheen The course ef the lamb market nn
early founds was much like Thursday's.
Packers started out bidding quite a little
lower on all kinds, but made their first
purchases generally steady, buying two
loads of clipped weatern lamb at $10.86 and
unable te get bids on spring lambs. wlch
made up a big part of the run. up to yes-
israaya levels, sellers nung on. but instead
of raising their early offers packers later
lowered them, and up tn midday four cars
of California spring lambs remained In the
pens under sharply lower offers. In fact
aoma of them that were offered to packers
a flat quarter lower than yesterday were
refused. Packers said tha weakness waa
mainly due to the fact it hat prices have been
so much higher than eastern mutton trade
conditions warrant, but that the break to
dsy would not have been ao severe had
sellers not held onto their atuff ao long that
nuyers were forced to let their killing
No old sheep of any kind were here. Com
pared with a week ago closing sales of both
wooled and clipped lambs are strong to if
anything a little hiaher. Tons show aulte
a little higher. Tops show quite a little, -advance,
but most of this is due to improved
quality. Up to yesterday spring lambs were
tuny nan a aonar a Dove last week's close,
but the way buyers were acting today It
looked as though most if not all this ad
vance might be lost. Old sheep have been
too scarce to really make a market, but are
nominally quotable fully steady.
